Independence High School senior Dustin Duarte wasn’t sure he would be named the school’s valedictorian. He said earlier this week that school officials only told him three weeks ago he was in the running.
Duarte said with a few other students vying for the top student recognition, he didn’t want to get his hopes too high.
